Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
My niece plays ball, in her case, volley ball. She knows what to do to win the game. She told me about the strategies and tactics her team was using to win, boy does she know strategy. Montana is a teenager
When it comes to extending the Kingdom, too many people don't know as much as my teenage niece knows about 'winning'. Too many don't know how to win people to Christ, don't know how to make disciples, don't know how to plant new works, often don't know how to solve conflicts with other believers by using Biblical principles. It ought not to be this way.
On our Kingdom Journey, we have a simple charter. Gather believers, extend the Kingdom. Those 5 words describe something profoundly different than anything I have seen before. They describe uniting in communities to extend the Kingdom.
Hey! I grew up and the same with many today, what we see is people belonging to 'this church' or to 'that church'. In our effort - though people go to maybe a dozen different local churches, there is only one church. It is just us, a small group for sure, but we see ourselves as the body of Christ, responsible to do the work of the Kingdom together in our community.
We are learning is how to plant, perceive, proclaim, care & guide, and impart. Our key focus area at the moment is marriage building. We have three teams, each to play a part: The Plant/perceive Team; The Care, Guide & Impart Team, or The Proclaim Team.
What is the expected outcome? It is that after we have gone through marriage building, family building and disciple building that we will have skilled people who can proclaim, build and provide training for anything God stirs us see that the community needs.
We are learning a different way to 'play the game."
